Wheel weight can also affect your efficiency. If you’re in a warm climate the hankook ions will work but they will it handle even light snow. You’ll give up some dry traction and ride quality the biggest deficiency will be wet handle and braking distance. Also most of your rolling resistance comes from the hysteresis of the tires sidewalls. Eco tires have to use a reinforced sidewall and a rock hard compound to make a meaningful difference in rolling resistance. If you didn’t go aftermarket on wheels then the 245 will be at the limit of its mounting width and you’ll be really flexing those sidewalls which will really add to rolling resistance.
Didn't change out the rims as these fit the stock rims. They do handle better for sure. I was seeing the review on the Hankook and it looked like they should be okay in wet conditions. I don't have to worry much about snow in Georgia so the all season should be fine. I'll keep the DWS + as a backup

Back in Oct 2021 We picked up our GTPE and changed summer tires for Mich all season sport pilot a/s 4. We live in west pa. Butler county and get 40 or more inches of snow a year. Tires are excellent, wearing well at 11500 miles. Last year hit with deep snow 6 inches and tires preformed quite well. Will buy again. They are rated XL for heavy vehicles over 5000 lbs.

Wow thanks for posting. That's a great tire video on YT.
I just took my MME GT (non PE) to big bear, CA and had close to 0 issues without chains. Though I am a very good driver. The AWD helps.
The only issue was finding a decent charger I would say......

Great info. Personally, I'm looking into the new Hanook iON evo when it comes time to replace my tires, but I'll wait to see some reviews. https://www.hankooktire.com/us/en/tire/ion/evo-as-suv.html
Not sure it translates to EV tires, but I put a set of 8 Hankook tires on my Motorhome a year or so ago, and they turned out to be a great tire at 60% of the price of the Michelins. Very quiet, excellent ride quality and no evidence of wear after a year,

I took a hard hit on the Conti's I had on my FFE (FocusEV) It was around town so I did't really care. But then they wore out at 18,000 miles. Not sure they like the heat of our streets.

I like all the hype of the Hankook. Can wait for real world tests. But I also am astounded by the weight of the 19's on the Premiums.

I have around 22,000 miles on the Mach E AWD (First Edition / Premium) - I have had it for a little over 2 years. The tread on the original Michelin tires is already down to replacement depth. I drive it mostly back a forth to work / local. Is this typical life for the first set? And besides loosing some EV range between charges, what would be the advantage (if any) of going up to a 235/55 R19 size. Looking at a Michelin Defender LTX M/S that's in stock. Has a 70K tread warranty, and seems to have good ratings for the most part.

Make sure whichever tires you pick are XL (extra load) load rated and will fit on the Mach-E. Those Michelin Defender LTX M/S look to be SL (standard load) rated and may not handle the extra weight of an EV.

I recommend these Hankook tires. Very nice!! I replaced mine at 33k miles.

Remember to match the load rating as well as size. The Mach E tire load rating is higher than most tires have...

The load rating has to meet or exceed 103H.

So it sounds like the iONs are living up to their marketing hype then.

My 2022 Premium AWD ER passed inspection in March. May 27th will be one year of ownership and I have just 16,000 miles on the car. I expect to need new tires by my next inspection. Given the cold weather range loss did not inconvenience me, I might go for a wider tire than stock. Will definitely consider the Hankooks.

Good point - thank you. These Michelin Defender LTX M/S tires they propose have a 105H rating, so we seem good in that respect. I know that my speedometer would be a little off with the 235 size vs. the original ....

Another point is if you change sizes you need to change air pressure.

a 235/55/19 105 supports the same weight as the factory tire at 35 PSI so it would be overinflated at 39psi. This could give you a more cushy ride at the cost of efficiency. Its best to not change sizes on a EV

This is the exact tire and size have been considering. I'm curious - did you get this tire and if so, what are your impressions. I have used it on other vehicles and loved it. Thanks!
